When in Boston, we knew we had to get a cannoli in the North End. We happened upon Modern, so that was it. Everything in the case looked amazing, and I could have ordered a dozen different desserts. We ended up with a classic cannoli and a layer cake. YUM! The line was long, but worth the wait, and they only take cash, so plan ahead.

A classic Italian pastry shop in the North End. They have a line that cascades down the street. All of the classic pastries are here.

Torrone and the cream-filled Lobster Tail are a must buy when you visit Modern Pastry Shop. The line may be long at times, but the pastry is worth the wait.

While we strolled down Hanover Street in Boston we went into Modern Pastry. What a great find and luck for us. The Pastries and everything else are all fantastic. One of the many items we bought I had to try The Lobster Tail Cream Filled Pastry. : WOW ! A very flacky pastry with a rich cream filling made with Racotta Cheese . Creme and some sort of whipped cream. Just Outstanding. I will order several to be shipped to me soon.The Best in Boston !

Ok, so I'm from the South, and I don't really profess to be a cannoli expert. But I will say that I walked up to the counter on a Sunday afternoon (before Marathon 2013), and was treated wonderfully, then was given a beautiful package filled with cannolis and various other pastrys...all of which were fantastic. I had taken a local's advice to choose Modern over it's rival, and I certainly was not disappointed. And the price was less than expected!
